Toronto, Ontario - June 4 2012 - On June 5, 2012, Midtown Toronto will launch a brand-new community marketplace in June Rowlands Park (Davisville and Mount Pleasant) offering local produce, organic meats, cheeses, prepared foods, sustainable fish and complimentary workshops. The market will be launched by City Councillor Josh Matlow and will feature live music by The Argues, a neighbourhood family band.
There will be over 30 different vendors from the GTA and its surroundings, including Monforte Dairy, Field Sparrow Farms and Chocosol. It will also be the first market to feature weekly food trucks, offering an assortment of decadent take-away right from their vehicle window.
More than a market, "AppleTree in Davisville Village" will serve as the go-to destination for seasonal local produce, as well as offering weekly children's activities and entertainment, a restaurant-retail program showcasing Ontario's fresh foods, and a residential delivery box program featuring market items. Residents will be introduced to a "local-sustainable food village" project that will encourage the neighbourhood to source their groceries from the market and partnering retail shops, dine at some of the participating restaurants and to truly live locally.
This new Appletree venture is the group's second location and is the initiative of Lesley Stoyan and Chris Trussell, the co-owners of Daily Apple, a food and lifestyle consulting company with a passionate commitment to the community. The village project, spearheaded by Stoyan, Trussell, and Culinarium owner Kathleen Mackintosh, aims to create community in the park and encourage sustainable shopping habits through local foods and programs.
AppleTree in Davisville Village is easily accessible by TTC (Davisville Station) and offers plenty of bike and neighbourhood street parking. The market opens June 5 2012 in June Rowlands Park and runs every Tuesday from 3-7pm until October 16.
